" Anything produced by causes and conditions is impermanent, not only in the sense that it must at some time terminate but also in the sense of its moment-by-moment transformation. The end of birth is death, the end of good is bad, the end of bad is good, the end of togetherness is separation, the end of creation is destruction and the end of composition is decomposition. "
Tai Situ Rinpoche, from " The Four Seals ", sometimes also called the 'Four Keys of the Buddha's teaching'.
As a musician :
Before recording, I try to evoke the same mental scene : play what came to my mind, to reflect it during the recording session.
But it will never be as before.
I can't capture or play back exactly the same thing.
What I play now it's just something similar.
What came to mind, where did it come from ? Why "I got inspired"?
If I had not recorded, it would have dissolved as smoke in the air...
